Männlichkeit hat viele Facetten: Diese Werbung feiert die Körper echter Männer

Diese Werbekampagne präsentiert uns "echte Männer, die stolz auf ihren Körper sind" und setzt damit ein Zeichen für Body Positivity und zeigt, dass Männlichkeit 2.0 viele Facetten hat.

In der Werbewelt und auf Instagram wird Body Positivity seit einigen Jahren großgeschrieben, vor allem in Bezug auf Frauen. Grund dafür ist, dass in unserer Gesellschaft mehr Druck auf dem weiblichen als auf dem männlichen Körper lastet.

Männliche Selbstakzeptanz

Erst im Dezember hat sich Sänger Sam Smith für mehr Selbstakzeptanz ausgesprochen. Nun hat auch die britische Seite Manualbeschlossen, auch einmal die männliche Seite der Selbstakzeptanz zu präsentieren. Denn genau wie die Frauen leiden auch die Männer unter den Schönheitsidealen unserer Gesellschaft. Auch wenn sie sich von jenen der Frauen unterscheiden, sie existieren.

Die Kampagne zeigt uns Männer, die lediglich mit einer Boxershorts bekleidet für die Kamera posieren. Die Männer auf den Bildern des britischen Fotografen Hermione Hodgson gleichen einander in keiner Weise. Jeder Einzelne äußert sich in einer Nachricht unter seinem Bild zu den Themen Selbstbewusstsein und Körpergefühl.

Männlichkeit hat viele Facetten

Alle Fotos dieser Kampagne und die Nachrichten machen eines deutlich: Männlichkeit hat viele Facetten und es ist höchste Zeit, ein bisschen mehr von dieser Vielfalt zu zeigen. Das findet auch das 25-jährige Transgender-Model Kenny Ethan Jones:

Männlichkeit hat ein breites Spektrum: Das Geschlecht hat nicht nur eine Seite, jede Person ist anders. Wie kann eine einzige Person definieren, was für alle Menschen Männlichkeit bedeutet? Das ist unmöglich.

”My name is Kenny Ethan Jones, I’m 25-years-old. I would describe myself as a trans model and activist. But there’s also an entrepreneurial side to me. I’m a Forex trader, which means I trade stocks and currencies. . Masculinity is a spectrum. Gender doesn’t just exist in one place, every person is different. So how can one person classify what masculinity stands for, for every man? It’s impossible. . Going to the gym was a huge part of me overcoming any insecurities I had about my body. I was skinny - I weighed about seven stone - and then I went up to ten stone. So that added weight made me feel a bit more masculine, stronger and gave me that confidence; when you feel that confidence, you radiate it out to everyone else and they feel it, too. My advice to anyone is, whatever makes you feel happy and feel more confident, just do it and do more of it!” -Kenny Ethan Jones #MenofManual #mentalhealthawarenessweek . 📸: @hermionehodgson_photography . . . . . . . . . . #bodypositivitymovement #bodypositive #bodypositivity #trans #transgender #transisbeautiful #effyourbeautystandards #bodypositivemovement #model #transmodel #bodyimage #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthawarenessmonth

Der 24-jährige Bashir Aziz nimmt auch an der Kampagne teil und hat Vitiligo genau wie das berühmte Model Winnie Harlow, die ihre Andersartigkeit zu ihrer Stärke gemacht hat. Er erklärt, dass es ihm früher schwerfiel, seinen Körper zu mögen. Für ihn steht fest, dass man mit sich selbst im Reinen sein muss, um seinen Köper so zu akzeptieren wie er ist: Eine Herausforderung, die ihm gelungen ist.

"My name is Bashir Aziz and I’m 24-years-old. I’m from London. I would consider myself to be a full-time artist. . You know that Drake song, "You Only Live Once.” I took that on board and realised you just need to do what makes you happy and not waste any time doubting yourself. We're not cats around here, we only live one life. . Back then, my mental health wasn't great, but my body was fantastic, I just never knew.” -Bashir Aziz #MenofManual #mentalhealthawarenessweek . 📸: @hermionehodgson_photography . . . . . . . . . #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthawarenessmonth #mentalhealthquotes #bodypositive #bodypositivity #bodypositivitymovement #bodypositivemovement #vitiligo #vitiligomodel #vitiligoworld #artist #artistsoninstagram #artistsofinstagram #artists_insta #mindsetquotes #mindset

Sylvester Campion wiederum wurde Opfer eines schweren Unfalls. Seither kann er ein Bein nicht mehr bewegen und ist an einen Rollstuhl gebunden. Seine Message lautet: "Wenn die Leute dir sagen, du kannst das nicht tragen, du kannst so nicht rumlaufen, sei einfach du selbst."

Today marks the first day of Mental Health Awareness Week. With this year's theme focusing on body image - aka how we think and feel about our physique - we figured showing a diverse range of awesome guys would be a perfect way to kick things off. . The mounting pressure to have the perfect body isn't something that just affects women. Men are bombarded with Greek God-like men in their underwear ... and it's having a seriously negative impact on guys everywhere - Especially when it comes to their mental health. Enough is enough. . This week, we're calling for more diverse, inclusive representation of men in the media by telling the stories of eight extraordinary guys. These are real men celebrating what makes them different. Stay tuned.... #MenofManual #mentalhealthawarenessweek . 📸: @hermionehodgson_photography .

“Hi, my name’s Ben Whit and I’m the UK’s first plus sized male model. . Growing up seeing men on social media, seeing this ‘Men’s Health’ body, being told that all men have to look a certain way, and they have to have chiselled chests and rock hard abs, it put a strain on my mental health. A lot of my mates were smaller than me and they were toned and I was the biggest in my class, I did feel depressed and would think, “Am I meant to look like this?” But there’s no such thing as a perfect body, it doesn’t actually exist, all bodies are unique in their own ways. . I lost my hair at the age of 21, when I started thinning, I used to try and cover it up, put powder in it, pile in products, then last year I just shaved it off and thought “enough is enough” and now I feel a lot more confident than I did. I don’t always go out of the house with a hat, and to me that’s a big thing. Also, I think the beard helps!” - Ben Whit #MenofManual #mentalhealthawarenessweek . . . . . . . . . #mentalhealth #mentalhealthquotes #menshealth #plussize #plussizemodels #bodypositivity #bodypositive #bodypositivemovement #bodypositivemodel #plussize #mentalhealthawarenessmonth #itsok #itsoktonotbeokay #effyourbeautystandards #beautiful #men #man #modelsofinstagram #thursdaythoughts

"Hi, my name is Yeohan Kim. I’m 32 and live in West London, but am originally from South Korea. I’m a creative soul; I’m an actor, commercial model, presenter, foodie and a big coffee snob. ⠀ ⠀ My tip for maintaining good mental health is to be grateful for what you have. The way I look at it is even though I don't have what some people would consider the "perfect body", I'm alive, healthy and very fortunate. I'm also a firm believer in affirmations. I like to wake up in the morning and say to myself, "I look good and I'm well." -Yeohan Kim #MenofManual⠀ .⠀ To close out Mental Health Awareness Week, it's important to remember your mind and the way you feel about yourself is something worth looking after every day of the year. As the awesome @MattZHaig states, "There are a million ways to be smart/strong/sexy/masculine. It takes a narrow imagination to only see one way. This is not Sparta. The world is bigger than a gym." #mentalhealthawarenessweek⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmatters #selflove #health #mindfulness #selfcare #wellness #anxiety #depression #mentalhealthawareness #recovery #motivation #healing #mentalillness #psychology #healthylifestyle #happy #healthyliving #meditation #positivity #selfharm #positivevibes #positivethoughts #positiveenergy #bodypositive #bodylove #bodypositivity #effyourbeautystandards
